How are fight scenes planned in films

Even more blatant than "John Wick": "Mortal Kombat" is said to have the best fight scenes

The video game series "Mortal Kombat" is known for its brutal battles and that is exactly what the upcoming video game adaptation should make.

The video game series "Mortal Kombat" looks back on a very long history. After starting out in amusement arcades, numerous parts appeared on various consoles. There were also two "Mortal Kombat" films that somehow had their charm, but were more bad than right.

With the new "Mortal Kombat"Film now wants to do everything better for Studio Warner Bros. and the first trailer already showed some brutal fatalities that the" video game "fans long for. The big question here is whether the entire fight scenes are implemented well. In an interview (via Screen Rant), “Mortal Kombat” producer Todd Garner really raved about the fight sequences for which director Simon McQuiod is responsible. According to the director, the aim was to make "Mortal Kombat" the best fighting film.

“Simon set out to create the best fighting film ever made. Time will tell if he made it, but the fact speaks to it that he set that bar and the fact that he cast the film with the best men and women who could make this film.

Perhaps the film actually gets better than "John Wick" or similar titles in this regard.

In the further course of the interview, producer Todd Garner emphasized how good the actors who play Liu Kang, Sonya Blade and Kabel really are. Garner was particularly enthusiastic about Kabel, because when he saw actor Daniel Nelson in the costume of the "Mortal Kombat" character, he was completely impressed.
